What we’re Enjoying

Jay watched a fun, crazy Bollywood movie called Polite Society. A heist, action, comedy that is a ton of fun to check out. Shua just got back from Punta de Mita, Mexico where he actually tried to relax for a few days (and almost even succeeded a couple of times)

Jay has updated MCU Location Scout with new locations from Guardians of the Galaxy vol 3. It’s a great rabbit hole to explore. And also, don’t forget to read his articles called Sci-Fi Saturdays on Retrozap.com  

 

Enjoy Movies!   

Return of the Jedi premiered 40 years ago this week. As Star Wars fans, we were highly anticipating the final chapter of the saga. And also preparing ourselves for never seeing another movie in the theaters. Regardless of what came after, 1983 was quite a year to indulge in all things Star Wars. 

 

We talk about the transition from Revenge to Return in the title. Ultimately, it was the perfect change, but we got some rare products before George made the final decision. 

 

Did you know that Jedi was one of only a handful of films that made some premieres in 70mm? 164 different theaters around the country got the chance to share this innovative format for us. Even if we weren’t always aware of what kind of awesomeness we were getting. 

 

Jay and Shua share stories of seeing the movie on opening weekend, including the theaters where they saw them. While some of the theaters may have now been sent to the great Hollywood Heaven in the sky, we still have the memories. 

 

Join us for a game of Jedi-opardy as Jay asks Shua some trivia questions centered around the actors and actresses featured in Return of the Jedi. 



Did you see Return of the Jedi in 1983? What memories of the film do you have? First person that emails me with the subject line, “Yub Nub” will get a special mention on the show.  Let us know. Come talk to us in the Discord channel or send us an email to EnjoyStuff@RetroZap.com
